Visited Hyannis for the day with family, and Spanky's had been recommended. We all had the fish and chips with cups of clam chowder. We couldn't get over how good the fish and chips were-the fish was so light and melted in your mouth, and you could taste and feel the cream in the clam chowder. Some of the best... More

The outside dining is great alongside the Hyannis harbor. The frozen drinks were so good as well as the lobster rolls, fried oysters and clams, ceasar salad and everything.

in New England for our 30th anniversary and went to Spanky's as it was highly recommended by the locals, we were not disappointed! friendly staff (and very helpful if you're not very sea food savvy) the meal was superb, the atmosphere was as good as it could be, Not to be missed if yoy have the chance to visit.

I live here on Cape Cod, so when friends come for a visit, they are looking for good Seafood. I always take them to Spanky's when they are in the mood for Lobster or fried clams or a nice Salmon dinner. The food is always the best here. You can get pretty good seafood at a lot of places on...

The place is not the best to look at from the outside but when you go inside the food is so very good. Our service was friendly from the time we went in to the time we left. The staff went above and beyond getting a shirt that I wanted from the shop next door since they basically closed for... More

We are locals and come to Spanky's often. The lobster rolls are always excellent and the seafood platter more than one can eat. Sit outside and enjoy the view.

We called in here for lunch and both opted for the burger which was cooked to perfection. The staff were both friendly and attentive. As an added bonus the restaurant afforded us a great view over the harbour. Would certainly go again!

Stayed in Hyannis for a week and we stopped on our way in late one night! They were about to start the shut down process but seated us with a smile! Waitress was very pleasant and responded to our needs very promptly! Now for the food, fantastic clam chowder, clam strips very tasty with a light batter, scallops were scrumptious!... More
